We took our 3 dogs on a walk here and it was great! The bikers were super friendly and so were the other pedestrians. My dogs really enjoyed the creek too!
One of my favorites Always peaceful
I started at Pershing school and walked in one mile. The trail was fantastic ( I am used to my gravel on where I live); and had mile markers on the asphalt every .2 miles. Asphalt all the way I walked and mostly shaded; lots of trees, simply a beautiful experience!
It was my first time riding this trail. I was a bit skeptical at first because I’ve never ridden it. Started from Kirkwood all the way down to Shrewsbury and then back. Definitely scenic. Especially around Grant’s Farm. I would definitely recommend it to any explorer.
Southern Platte Pass is a great trail. It is well maintained. It links me to Parkville and Line Creek Trail. This trail links me to the Greenway.
Very impressive that this trail is kept up by volunteers. Very few loose gravel spots where a hybrid bike can get questionable. Not really much to see, but very few road crossings and you can safely ride from Carthage to Car Junction.
The Little Blue Trace is a beautiful, well groomed trail. It is a county park, and the county parks and rec should be very proud. There are a few rough patches of the asphalted section near the northern trailhead on Blue Mill road. There’s an awkward zigzag over the railroad track. However, we had no road crossings. The trail went around and under all roads. How nice! We road round trip starting at the northern trailhead.
My husband and I rode 30 miles on 6/4/21. We live in St Joseph and really enjoy riding on our lovely parkway system. However, this was bar none a wonderful mix of an urban paved bike path vibe, to outright gorgeous views on a meandering crushed gravel trail into what felt like a scene from little house on the prairie. It was well maintained, marked well and so enjoyable, we plan to come back
Cute little trail with a water hazard. We stayed at Cooks RV and rode the bikes to the trailhead at the school. We got about a mile into it and came across a creek crossing. There is no bridge, so you have to ride through the creek on a concrete pad. There is signage that says not to cross through the water, so I assume that this creek is normally dry. The blacktop needs to be upgraded in a few spots.
This is an easy trail to walk, bike, or blade. Very level. Easy parking at the Remington Nature Center, located at the north end of the trail. As of Spring 2021, the trail is closed at the Casino, but the trail south is pleasant.
If you’re looking for variety, it’s not a terrible route. There are some pretty areas and some not so pretty areas, a few small hills, and it isn’t overly crowded before 8 am. You can get in a good distance for an easy or recovery run.
I biked this trail May 26, 2021. Except for about 100 feet of trail at mile point 4.2 (just carry your bike across the railroad tracks and bike to the north edge of the short unfinished section), this is a great trail from about mile point 2.5 all the way to the eastern end in Carthage.
The 2.5 mile section from the state line to near Carl Junction is (currently) only recommended for good bikers on mountain bikes (the gravel is thick in points and the trail is mostly un-cleared of brush).
I did the complete 16 mile trail on my hybrid bike, but I found the western-most 2.5 mile section a bit tricky.
I would recommend biking from the Carthage trailhead to Carl Junction and returning to Carthage. This gives you a nice 25 mile ride.
The Joplin Trails Coalition expects to have the entire 16-mile trail completed by sometime in 2022.
